Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
December is always an exciting time of year for you and especially the closer we get to Christmas. This has nothing to do with Christmas itself and everything to do with the fact that the Sun will already return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart just days before and will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year here. This year we have a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary and this will be evident from the get go. You not only begin the month with Saturn and Pluto here, where they have been working as a team for two years but with Venus, the planet of love here has well. It was Venus' return late last month that brought forward what the Sun doesn't normally highlight in an active way, until just before Christmas. However, Venus is just the opening act, with Jupiter's return in the early days of the month taking both an annual and ongoing focus on matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative and taking it to a whole new level. Jupiter will be here by 3rd December and here until December 2020, is set to light up the next 12 months. However, before then Jupiter will spend the early days of the month more focused on home and family matters, with the Sun always shining the solar spotlight on home and family matters in the first three weeks of December. While these are the two main areas of focus this month they are far from the only areas. Venus' return to your work sector on 20th December might mean keeping your work hat on over Christmas, New Year, the holiday period and the first two weeks of 2020, but will be a chance to capitalise on a Full Moon on the career front on 12th December. This will give you a chance to get the most out of this professional year, while giving you a jump on your 2020 professional year before it begins. In the meantime, Neptune and Mars will work together to make this a good month on the communication and relationship fronts.
Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019
As much as a professionally charged Full Moon in the middle of Jupiter's first and Venus' last full week in a playful part of your chart should create a balance issue between work and play, that is unlikely to be the case. They might be competing for the same time and attention, but in every other aspect there is no competition. Thursday's Full Moon in your career sector is definitely an important professional milestone and especially with Venus returning to your work sector next week. However, this is no threat to the planets in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and that will work to your advantage professionally. With the most powerful planets in the solar system now all in a playful part of your chart a Full Moon that will be over in a few days is no threat so they won't even bother to compete. This frees the Moon to charge things up professionally, with the potential for unexpected developments.
Monday 9th of December 2019
There is something both ordinary and the extraordinary about today's adventurous lunar vibes and their link into playful forces. On the one hand, in one form or other this is something that has happened every four weeks since as far back as 2008. Yet, on the other hand, the planetary activity on the adventurous and playful fronts has increased dramatically, with the Moon picking up on changes that have taken place as recently as the past week. What today's adventurous lunar vibes and their link to playful forces reveal, is a taste of things to come.
Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac, ruled by the planet Mercury. Virgo is the second sign ruled by this dualistic God, who also rules over Gemini, where his energy is expressed through the element of air and the mind.
In the earth sign of Virgo, Mercury becomes more discerning and critical about what he has learned, applying astute attention to detail and striving for perfection. Through your sign he offers himself in service to the earth, in artistic, practical, material and mundane ways.
You are one of the humble workers of the zodiac and you don't mind rolling up your sleeves and getting on with it. You'll do it neatly and with exactitude, because that is your way. You have an innate sense of order and a keen eye for precision and you take satisfaction in doing what you do, to the very best of your ability.
You are something of a perfectionist and you often strive for purity. This gives you a more than passing interest in health and hygiene, as well as a desire for cleanliness. It's not a foregone conclusion whether or not your immediate surroundings are neat, clean and ordered, but you'd definitely like them to be!
You sign is a mutable, restless, nervous and changeable one. The ruler of Virgo was a God with wings on his feet, so your restless spirit needs some change and variety in your working day and in your life.
As an earth sign, you're very much at home with mother nature and at times you can do a very good impersonation of her too!
There are many Virgo's who are secretly the power behind a throne. Your sign and your nature are known to be introverted. You're naturally shy and retiring, so you're quite happy to work behind the scenes, and let someone else have the praise or attention.
The Virgo instinct is to be useful, and you seem to never tire of helping others, personally or professionally. Virgo doctors and nurses abound, also medical herbalists, nutritionists, dietitians, therapists and alternative therapists. If we don't find you in one of those professions, you're sure to be knowledgeable in at least one of those areas.
With your keen observation skills and fine attention to small detail, you can also excel in the arts, putting something of beauty into earthly form is an expression of Virgo, as is any craft where you make something beautiful or useful with your hands. Everything you do will show your love of order and symmetry, even your handwriting, which is probably neat.
You get along best with the other quiet, humble and introverted signs like your good self. Those are the earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn, and the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
If Mercury was not in the same sign as the Sun when you were born, this will modify the experience and expression of your Virgo energy. If you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to help. You're always helping others, it might be good to allow someone to help you for a change!
